It is well documented now that Wexford hurler, Lee Chin, was on the receiving end of racial abuse recently…
In a challenge game against Tipperary, a Tipperary hurling supporter racially abused Lee Chin.
As could be seen and heard from the video which then surfaced online, it sparked a strong reaction from the Wexford players led by Rory O’Connor who confronted the man on the side-line.
The referee was forced to end the game prematurely as a result.
The Sunday World revealed yesterday that the Tipperary man who racially abused Lee Chin has since sent the Wexford man a letter of apology.
There is currently a GAA investigation ongoing into the matter, but there has been no official complaint made to the Gardaí about the incident.
Speaking to the Sunday World, Wexford chairman Micháel Martin does not believe that there will be a Garda investigation until Wexford’s GAA season has concluded, noting that the Wexford man does not want to impede Championship preparations with an investigation.
It’s not the first time Chin has suffered racial abuse in the GAA and he has spoken out about it before, and how his family also receive it.
